WIth the recent explosion of enthusiasm for the cat ears idea, I had a random thought - what if CCP could make a moderated forum thread where only ideas for new art would come in (new clothing, ideas what could be made for current assets to the game or even completely new stuff that the game didn’t see yet) and people could vote for those.
Not only it would give people another venue of engagement, possibility for CCP to get players on board with ideas (reminders about the thread existing idea of the week posts on twitter, adding a segment to CCP streams where some less voted ideas are shown to get people interested in voting) but would be a valuable tool in scoping what people want.
Not to mention of course, some ideas the company maybe didn’t know if they would stick or something completely new and worthwhile projects.
And of course, with what the companies are for - it would push some of the art direction into things that people would gladly buy, making skin etc sales bigger.
I myself have several ideas in mind, but I have no idea if just throwing them, each one in a separate thread would not get them drowned out quickly and not seen.
